Join us! Everyone is welcome.
Where does your food come from? How does it get to you? How healthy is it? How can you support local farmers and food producers through your food purchases?
The Kingston Public Library and edible South Shore & South Coast have teamed up to host an ongoing series of programs about the phenomenon of “eating locally.” Please join us in the discovery of our local food.
This year, the series is also hosted by the Kingston Council on Aging and the Kingston Public Library Foundation as part of a new collaboration.

April 20, 2017 — Fermentation
Fermentation. A new dietary buzzword associated with probiotics and gut health. But it’s really not that new. Bread, beer, wine, cheese, even some meats. Come learn about the everyday foods you’re probably already eating that have been fermented as we talk about this ancient food preservation technique. We’ll talk about what fermentation is and how to start fermenting at home.
Presented by Linda Davey of Independent Fermentations – Home Brew and Supply Store.
Join us! And if you have a favorite fermented food, bring some to share.

Here’s a glimpse of the rest of the season. More details to follow.
May 18, 2017 — Backyard Grilling, with Paula Marcoux
(Please note that the monthly topics sometimes change if there are circumstances we can’t control.)
The South Shore Locavores series — a collaboration between the Kingston Public Library and edible South Shore & South Coast magazine — looks at what it means to eat locally. The series has been running since January 2010. The series is also hosted by the Kingston Council on Aging.
Programs will be held from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Kingston Senior Center, 30 Evergreen Street (behind the Town House, and to the left).
Please let us know if you’d like to be a speaker at any of the programs or would like to offer a door prize.
Love to cook? Please feel free to bring a dish to share to any of the gatherings. There will be time at the beginning and end of each meeting for Munching and Mingling.
TEAM UP AGAINST HUNGER: In an effort to help fight hunger on the South Shore, we will be collecting non-perishable foods at the beginning of each gathering to donate to the Greater Plymouth Food Distribution Center. If you can, please bring a can.
Would you like to be more closely involved with the SSL sessions? There are various ways you could help with preparing or running the sessions. If you’re interested in volunteering, let us know.
The gatherings are free. However, if you are able, donations of $0 to $10 will be gratefully accepted to help cover expenses. Any surplus will be used towards library book purchases.
Gather with us at 7:00pm
